Confession: I'm a picky eater. I also married a (not as) picky eater. Between the two of us there is probably a lengthy list we could compile of the foods we aren't fond of or don't frequently have in our home. The older I've grown the more unfortunate I have realized this to be. I've thankfully grown … Continue reading Time to Eat!
Yesterday my husband offered some time out of the house and even mentioned getting my nails done. If you blinked, you probably missed me grabbing my things and getting out the door. As hard as it is leaving my little pumpkin behind, I know she needs alone time with Daddy and it's good for me … Continue reading Dear Momma

After ordering it a couple weeks ago, checking multiple times a day for the status and then and stalking the tracking number on FedEx for days, it came packaged so. perfectly. cute. That's the box. Seriously. Packaging … Continue reading Christmas in January
If you know me at all, you know that I HATE paying full price for things. I wouldn't classify myself as cheap, but I never pay full price without searching for coupons and discount codes. Dave and I have a once a month Dairy Queen date because of a regular buy one/get one free coupon … Continue reading Thrifty Thursday

It's 2015...a new year! I'm a new (ish) parent. A new stay at home mom. … Continue reading Hello there, new.
